NutriAdrenal v Cortes - advice please

I'm posting this on behalf of my daughter who is being treated by Dr Peatfield for CFS and fibromyalgia. He had put her on NutriAdrenal but after taking it for about 2 and a half months and building up to 5.5 she doesn't feel that it's helping and is wondering whether to try Cortes. Unfortunately Dr P seems unavailable at the moment so she can't get advice from him and she's almost out of NutriAdrenal so needs to make a decision quickly. Please can someone advise on this, and also on reputable sources of Cortes if she does decide to try it. You can PM me if necessary and I'll pass on the info.

Thanks everyone.

  • Hi kjc1tisdell,

    Yes, Dr P wants her to get to 8 eventually but she's having to do it slowly because of reactions and feels that it's not effective. These decisions are difficult, aren't they?

  • Hi Kjc1

    Iv been on Nutri Adrenal

    For 3 years now, finally my adrenals are now functioning as they should be. It takes times for the body to

    Adapt to

    Nutri Adrenals. Iv been seeing Dr P for the last 3 years, who recommended them, and I have my last appt in a couple of weeks. Hopefully il be coming off them, I feel I no longer need them. I suggest give them a while, so the body can get use to them.

  • Hi my adrenals were at 15 total for whole day. I don't know what to do now as this test was a couple of years ago using the saliva test. However my gp test cortisol with the blood test which I argue against bit cortisol level comes back fine. I have occasional moments when cortisol is low when testing heart rate. Then it seems to recover its self so maybe they have recovered themselves. However I am struggling to walk and in chronic pain so needs thyroid meds looked at . Vicious circle. I was going to ask gp for Ldl script for auto immune problems

    will let you know if success full.

    When I take adrenal meds now my heart rate goes up. So don't know whether to waste more more getting them retested or not . Kind of going out of my mind a little.

    ps. I know its sounds daft as I new to forum but I don't know how to private message someone.

  • Hi Kate

    No worries, I think you can click on the name of the person and send them a msg, Im also ever so slightly new, so I am still learning.

    The other issue could be Auto immune, so may be Hashimotos, have you had your ESR or CRP measured? They are your inflammatory markers.

    What I can suggest is trying epsom salt bath, the magnesium levels in the flakes increase your own Magnesium, transdermally, which can help with Inflammation, pain and increasing DHEA. Did the Dr measure your DHEA?

    Thanks

  • Measure my dhea lol got to be kidding. I'm already costing them to much by having t3 off them. I am onlyone in gp practice of 250.000 patients on t3. My pharmacist told me this. They want me back on t4 so badly that iI'm struggling to get anything else off them.

    but thanks for your help it much appreciated.

    regards kate

  • Thanks for that info Monica - I'll pass it on to my daughter. I guess she's finding it hard to give it time, as she's been ill with CFS for 19 years, with a few years remission at one point, and now has fibromyalgia and very fatigued kidneys too, plus probably hypothyroidism, which of course can't be addressed until the adrenals are sorted. She has two boys aged 10 and 6 and longs to be well so she can be the mother they need. But you can't rush these things can you?

    Glad to hear that your patience has finally been rewarded. All the best for your future health.

  • Hi Monica01,

    I think your message to Kate has somehow come to me (ValTay) by mistake. Hope you will be able to sort it out.

  • Hi Val
